Below are the following services that I offer:
With hundreds of hours experience acculumated in cleaning instruments of all conditions and origin, you can be sure that that your instrument’s varnish will not just be carefully preserved, but also brought back to life. If your instrument is antiqued, any patina original to the making will not be lost. A light English-recipe polish blend will be applied after cleaning, and this is to protect your instrument from general day-to-day handling.
I do not offer French polishing, this is an outdated and invasive practise. My cleaning rates are hourly, so it’s best to make sure that you give your instrument a gentle dry wipe after each playing to minimise this cost!
